FAQ's


We feel it’s important to blend in as much as possible (for security more than anything), so we use minimal branding. But, if you would prefer to have a fully branded van we have a few promotional vans so please let us know prior to booking.

You will receive full orientation of the van, its controls, appliances and maintenance responsibilities. Orientation consists of a personal walk round of the van by a qualified instructor. There will be a manual in the vehicle and you will also be given a helpline number for Kamper Hire should you have any questions or require help during your rental.

Our vehicles are less than 2 years old and are covered under VW Assistance. In the unlikely event they cannot fix the problem we will supply a replacement vehicle (subject to availability).

The minimum age requirement for campervan hire is 21 and the maximum age is 78 (if you are outside of these age requirements please contact us as we will need to contact our insurance company).

There are many excellent campsites in the UK and Europe. Please see the Plan your trip page for details. In England and Wales there is no legal right to wild camp, but there are plenty of remote spots.

We will need to see each driver’s full license (both parts if a UK license holder), plus a utilities bill with an address that matches your license. Overseas licence holders we will need to see your licence and passport. Please note: we cannot hire the vehicle with out these documents.

Please note the CDW does not cover the replacement or repair to the roof, undercarriage, windows, tyre damage, loss of keys or damage to the interior fixtures/fittings and equipment.
